Madhur Bhandarkar has released a still photo from his yet to be released film "Heroine". This is a rather bold picture that shows Kareena Kapoor smoking and drinking. Bhandarkar has also prepared a trailer with similar images. Trade pundits predict that this trailer might affect the success of the film negatively. For one, the censor board might never allow it to go on air!
Heroine is another female oriented film by Bhandarkar who tasted great success with his earlier similar films like Fashion. Sadly, Heroine has taken a lot of time to make. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was the initial choice for this much coveted role. Bhandarkar spent a lot of time waiting for Ash to be able to set aside dates for this project. When that happened, she became pregnant! So then Kareena was approached and again Madhur had to wait for his heroine's dates! We certainly hope that all this waiting and effort pays off for Madhur.
